Abstract: This research work has experimentally investigated on the effects of low modulus fibers (PP) used in concrete for the various percentages like 0. 0.5% and 1.0% (by volume fraction) along with different percentage of sugar cane bagasse ash from 0 to 15% replaced in Portland cement (by weight of binding material) for different mixes and tested for the various properties of high-performance concrete (HPC). This experimental test results indicated that the usage of SCBA is restricted up to 10% with 0.5% of PP (Polypropylene) along with 1.5% of superplasticizers produces the higher flexural strength was increased up to 78.30% and compressive strength of concrete was increased up to 25.80% when compared to control (plain) concrete at 28 days. Finally, the usage of low modulus fibre reinforced concrete to act as a corrosion inhibitor agent during the chloride attack than compared to high modulus fibers and reduce the plastic shrinkage due to excellent flexibility in concrete and also increases the life span.
